After a number of successes over the last few years, Erewash Sound has the chance of more glory after it was selected as a nominee in the Media Innovator Awards 2021 with the radio station selected by Corporate Vision Magazine.
The Media Innovator Awards 2021 will honour businesses and enterprises regarded as the driving force behind the region’s continued growth and success.
The nomination for the radio station comes after a three month process for organisations to submit nominations. Officials at the Cotmanhay-based radio station have to wait until October to find out whether there is a chance to add more accolades to those already collected.
Ian Perry is the Press and Publicity spokesperson for Erewash Sound. Speaking on the news of this latest chance of yet another award, he said: "Having already had as many as nine successes for our presenters at the annual Community Radio Awards, and receiving the 2020 award for Local Radio Station of the Year in the ‘Innovation and Excellence Awards’, we are absolutely delighted to be nominated as a possible recipient of a Media Innovator Award.
A great deal of hard work is put in by our volunteer team - particularly under very challenging circumstances during the pandemic - to provide a genuinely local 24-hour radio station, on our website, social media and on-line broadcast services in addition to our two FM frequencies, but our achievements would not be possible without the support of local businesses, and of course, our many listeners and we thank every single one of them, past, present and future. Our fingers are crossed for good news in October."
